RTFM. z/OS V1R2.0 TSO/E REXX User's Guide is not the most recent, though I'm certain it will answer your query.

Do nothing. I find it useful sometimes, mostly in SELECTs.

As it says in the manual, and I strongly suggest that you read that as there is some further explanation: NOP is a dummy instruction that has no effect. It can be useful as the target of a THEN or ELSE clause.

I interpret it, rightly or wrongly, as (N)o (OP)eration.

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort
